Application for fellowships at UC's free speech center

From an email circulated yesterday:

Only one month remains to apply for the UC National Center for Free Speech and Civic Engagement's 2020-2021 Fellows Program! The deadline to submit is Friday, March 6th.

The Center explores how the fundamental democratic and academic principles of free speech and civic engagement should enrich the discovery and transmission of knowledge in America’s colleges and universities.

Each year, the Center selects up to 10 fellows from a broad range of disciplines and backgrounds such as law, journalism, higher education, social science, technology and government. 
Fellows receive funding to further the national conversation related to expression and democratic participation on college campuses including how to advance campus dialogue and further diversity and inclusion.

The Center welcomes candidates from all backgrounds to apply. As part of the University of California, the Center is committed to promoting diversity and equal opportunity in its education, services and administration, as well as research and creative activity.

The Center invites a wide range of projects. We are especially interested in projects that will have a direct impact on individuals and communities across and within campus constituencies. We are focused on projects that enhance our understanding of how free speech is and can be practiced in American higher education within the context of our current climate.
